planes trains or automobiles?

Im thinking on goin away for a long weekend in March, I would love to go to New York but for 3 nights i dont think its worth the hassle as it'l probably take a day to get there and it'l be too expensive for jus 3 nights.

so now im thinking Paris. with the wife, (as its her birthday) but what im stuck on is i cant seem to find any cheap deals or any cheap flights.
whats the best way to go? plane or train? or automobile? (but i dont fancy driving there so thats out of the question) cheap as possible, prefer flights but eurostar if its recommended. and where to stay?

i was thinking about going to disneyland, but i dont want to go to france and not see the eiffle tower. and in 3 nights is not going to be enough for the resort, will it? or wil it be too much?

whos been? or going?
how much have you paid or paying?
where did u stay or staying?

dont want to do any long trips once im there, just want to go and rest. nice break.

want to fly out on friday and arrive on monday, or thursday and arrive on sunday.

any ideas?

Much Appreciated

I flew to Paris about a year ago and the flights and the transfers to Disney were an absolute nightmare, I would probably try Eurostar next time.

3 nights will be enough for Disney I would say, it is not that big, if you have got very young children you won't get round everything though.

I stayed in the Sequia Lodge Disney hotel as it worked out cheapest with the Disney passes in free. After some research when I got back I realised you can get year passes for less that £100 (I think) so might be worth a look. Also food is expensive so definitely worth going half board if you do stay in a Disney hotel, this saved us a fortune.

Had a great time though!! Will definitely go again!

I'm a bit confused

Do you mean you want to fly to Paris on the Friday, and fly back on Monday (or fly to Paris on Thursday and fly back on Sunday)?

Try the usual places like expedia/lastminute/opodo etc. They can usually set up a nice 3 day break pretty easily. Failing that, look for cheap flights here http://flightchecker.moneysavingexpert.com/

and book a hotel using one of the sites above, or similar, e.g. alpharooms/hrs/laterooms etc.

If you find a hotel that you like, google the name + reviews and you should get an idea of what the place is like (tripadvisor's pretty good for this)...

there is a trip that leaves every morning from the hotel new york at disney and does the full tour of paris-including lunch at the louvre,a cruise on the seine and up the eiffel tower-its actually the best way to see paris in one day-then you could have the other 2 days at disney parks itself-a day for the disney studios and a day for disneyland.

cheap flights are easy from glasgow if you have enough booking time ahead-check ryanair from your local if they fly to paris.

I just come back from Disneyland Paris and it was fantastic but.......3 days is a minimum if u ask me! It's exhausting trying to get everything done (although, saying that we did have the kids wih us so might not be so bad on ur own). We didn't really wanna drive either but we paid £169 plus just £50 for ferry, £80 for fuel and £40 for tolls.....that's a bargain in my eyes and the drive was pretty good too. I did Paris (Eiffel Tower etc a few years ago and that was fab too but you wont get both done in 3 days hun :thumbsup:

It took an hour for me to get through security at the airport either end and well over an hour to get to disney from Charles de Gaule. The flight itself was ok but all the messing about made it a massive effort with a three year old.

We got a taxi to the airport, then a bus to the terminal, then a plane to France, then a shuttle to the coach, then a coach to Disney. Not to mention all the walking about in between at the airports etc.

Don't attempt NYork in anything less than 5 days. Went last year, had a blast did all we wanted and more (very well organised). Don't believe in ever going back. 4 nights 5 full busy days. Awesome
